Fostering Hope relies on the work and dedication of volunteers to support children in foster care, the foster parents, and older teens and young adults who are entering the world with few, if any, relationships or resources.
It’s rewarding and impactful work, but it is not a casual commitment. Stability is essential in healing and moving on after trauma, so we seek volunteers who are willing to make long-term commitments and stick it out when things are tough. This sometimes means hearing or witnessing painful things, and being there for years as these kids grow and experience life’s ups and downs.
We recruit teams from churches and faith communities, where there is a pastor and a larger congregation to turn to for support.
Shorter-term volunteer opportunities may be available as needs arise.
